It’s electric

by statia on December 19, 2003

Ok, seriously. Does anyone know how to combat static electricity in hair? My hair has been mad static-y all damn week, and it’s driving me insane. I’ve tried hairspray on the brush, a bit of gel. Nothing.

Someone rub their feet on the carpet and shock me. Maybe it’ll neutralize the hair.

Hand lotion.

you could always shave it…

oh wait. which hair?

Redken’s Outshine during the day and tons of conditioner in the shower.

well, I know it sounds stupid but Bounce dryer sheets can be rubbed on things to eliminate static – maybe that’d work on your hair? otherwise, get a humidifier of some sort for your apartment.

Whenever my hair gets a little too out of control I spray a little bit of Static Guard in front of me and then sort of walk through it. I will do whatever it takes not to have staticy hair.

I was going to suggest what rickg did — fabric softener sheets. Don’t rub “really” well on the hair shafts or you’ll end up with greasy hair. But when I had long hair, just lightly gliding one across the strands always did the trick.

i always rinse my hands in the sink and then run my fingers through my hair.

and touch the filing cabinets a lot.

Conditioner, if you leave it in for a bit longer than usual while in the shower, it should help get rid of static.

Shit, did I say?

*rubs feet on carpet*
Shocking, eh?

a good friend of mine does hair for runway shows and she suggests spraying a bit of static guard on your brush and then running the brush through your hair. She said it is perfectly safe for your tresses ;)

The dryer sheet thing really works for quick fixes, but put a couple inside your pillow case and it will help to cut down on it too. Also, washing your hairbrush out a couple of times a week works well too.

I’ll go with the conditioner thing. Just leave it in a bit longer. It needs to be by itself, not in those 2-in-1 jobs. That doesn’t work.
